Mt Cootha Trails

What You Can Expect to See

Mt Cootha is located just 6km west of Brisbane’s CBD and is loaded with scenic trails and views that stretch for miles. You will soon see why this location is a favourite among local runners and walkers alike.

Starting and finishing from Simpson Falls Picnic Area this short course option is around 10km. Total elevation is 225m and is pretty much all on well maintained gravel path trails. There is a few stairs along the way and a couple of small bridge crossings.

One of the best things on this run is when we do a small detour off the track to head up to the Mt Cootha Summit lookout. From here you will be able to see the skyline of Brisbane and all the way to Moreton Bay. It is one the best vantage points to see all of Brisbane. And if we have time and the group opts for it there is a café at the top for a quick coffee break or ice-cream before we start our descent back down.

There are a couple of water taps on course so it's up to you if you would like to carry extra. A small bottle would be sufficient.

What you Need:

  • Running Shoes

  • Running Gear

  • Hat & Sunscreen Recommended

  • Small Water Bottle (optional)

  • Camera or Phone to take some Great Pics
